According to Eli Lilly & Co., the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Alimta as a treatment for advanced forms of lung cancer, including mesothelioma.
The drug was approved as an initial treatment for cancer alongside cisplatin, the chemotherapy drug. Originally, Alimta was approved as a secondary treatment for lung cancer to be used after chemotherapy. As new drugs are developed, the fight against cancer becomes more and more manageable.
Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. If you’ve been exposed to asbestos due to someone else’s negligence, contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-220-9341.
